Will high doses of Ritalin () show up on a standard 5 panel drug test at Quest Labs?? I know it is not an amphetamine and is not tested for specifically, but could it show a false positive as am amphetamine if you snort 4 or 5 times the prescribed dose.. About 10 to 15 ten mg tabs, 100 - 150 mgs. A day.

Well, Erowid.org says no. Ritalin has the same Methyl protein as Methamphetamine so if you're being tested for Meth, then I'd suggest that you don't risk it. However, if you're only being tested for amphetamines, then it might be okay. I haven't tested this yet but in theory it should be okay. But Adderall(Dextroamphetamine) has the Amphetamine protein without the Methyl protein, so I wouldn't suggest taking that.

Wrong, ritalin is not an amphetamine its a methlypheniate. Most companies do not test for ritalin or adhd drugs. Ritalin is similiarily structured like amphetamines but they have different compounds and metabolites. A lab can see the differences in metabolites. You can call pychemedics and asked them.

Ritalin will show up if it is specified on the drug slip for it to be tested to see if it in your system. Be up front when they ask you what medications you are on. If it is prescribed by a Dr no one can hold that against you unless you don't tell them.

Ritalin ( Methylphenendate) Is NOT an Amphetamine! It's a mild stimulant and works on specific parts of your brain. The othe ADD med Adderall is a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. My Doc gave me both to try to see wisjh worked better. On the Ritalin I felt more allert, focused, organized but still calm. The Adderal was terrible, I felt nausous and dehydrated, But I also felt so wired, I was irritabable, obnoxious and could not stop Talking..etc. RITALIN

Just to Clarify my first message in which i stated that Ritalin is not an amphetamine and Adderall is amphetamines and is definately SPEED!!! Like I said I hated the Adderal and feel hat Ritallin is a far better medication with less severe and fewer side effects. I must add the fact that when it comes to comtrolled substances I usually greatly excede the prescibed dose and snort the Ritalin. But hey, it works! I just more, can't get enough from the Doctor. So I use a months worth in a week!
